E97 – Our mom was out to California to visit and we roped her into an early morning recording! Mouse, dressed like Larry King, goes in for some digs. And Weens, dressed like Liberace, gets back with some jabs as we revert to our sibling rivalry days of fighting for mom’s attention. Laugh along at the stories of pets, cowboys, nicknames, cookies, feminism, and altercations at the dentist office. We reminisce about our psychic visit, our dad and friend who passed away, sing a little impromptu gospel, and hear a heartwarming story about our mom’s big brother, our Uncle Bill, to whom this episode is dedicated.

I said where's that book because i'm always asking about it and you always buried adult squirrel and yesterday the squirrel julianne.

00:20:05 - 00:25:01

She does call me squirrel. Yes why because when you were a baby. And i mean a baby like fourteen months old when you were toddling around and eighty five pounds yes sears acute upper body you would go find little things and you put them in our shoes And one which was all well and good because we knew where to go. Find our things but one time you took pets in their dallas cowboys jan and marcia squeamish one time you put your dad's razor in his tennis shoe exorcist. There's the exorcist thing coming back again. It's been that's where you got your squirrel. You are always suspicious of any different planet. I was absolutely there when you were born. So i knew you were mine and i think we are eyeballs look alike yeah you guys do to your similar yeah. We've merged into the same person ready.

I'll do one entry questions of our money. Learn some things about you because also that will segue into question about the psychic. Told you something ready. Here we go. Do you wanna read this twelve. Yes with those bifocals. That are kim momma. Did you have family tradition celebration or a recipe that has been handed down for generations and the answer is of course every family does and mine. Was the nut butter balls. That were always available at christmas time made with pecans from texas and real better wonderful and you might as well just slap them on your head. You turn your own better. Gramma did on her. I have heard arguments in me. My mom my mom your grandma harder. Yes churned when she was a girl and all of her family prior to that and it was a big ticket item in the household. So i ended up with the butter. Churn and my ask you see. We were native american half do not butterball better turning and then i'm wondering who was in a native american alright so anyway the better turn actually has where their hands held and you can see worn out this. Stick that their hands wrong. Yeah it does although they probably had tricks to make it go faster. I don't know but yes she did true. And then when i was little shasta it's a trick was to swindler up and use their foot. I just imagined a country back in texas barefoot in the grass and put this episode of it. Why is it. so there's that turns it around like what could kick studios. Did you have with who not handy. That's the hills of tennessee. We were in texas. Gary refined refined. Did you originally. My family was pretty. Refined pecan farmers if he saw and pecan one was when you grow one when you cook them. No it's all information in georgia. It's con- in texas it's conned. And then somehow in the northern states turned into pecan. And that's not how anybody in the south. Yeah and i don't know why but grandpa say again. No never always. That was in the movie heyman sally.

00:25:01 - 00:30:00

Yeah it's always pecan and if you say peaking in texas you get shot. That's it right okay. So native american. We have no men in our blood. We thought we had a line of native people in that. And then joel went ruin the whole by doing genealogy do yeah a lot of our stuff and we're mostly from virginia and plantation Yeah you'd have to trace back further. We didn't just born in texas. No we did not but it was a british league and we are the part of the problem. i know early years hand superiority. We're learning about its. I are racist videos that were having so schools. I added to look back at her. Nary word times and found out we were all on the confederate side. We were on the wrong side of history. And i thought we were liberal. Artists like we had a really cool liberal in their mom just told me dad said of the family were all super conservative serve. Did i become so cool. You had and just can't ever all we're women of the sixties so you brought us into line well hopefully that. When we go and parents weren't treating their children correctly or clerk was being not nice to females. I usually stepped in such an embarrassment all the time. Mom was just like i am woman. Hear me roar. Fourteen year old girl by your credit card. You get your manager woman. It was always something like that so not it is down at the crow canyon shopping centre some clothing store on the end of the little strip mall and some little girls working there and she wouldn't take your check could only do credit cards or something and you're so mad you ask for her boss. I remember. just think your weight. Entitlement from european roots. Are you the original carrier you the original no. She's like the king of a. I think it was not being fair. I think that's the one thing that just really lights my fire i would see unfairness happening and i just couldn't keep my mouth quiet. It happened with and we've already talked about this with toby's orthodontists situation and that was just last march. Yeah what happened. I don't think we told the story on the podcast yet. Can't tell it quickly please. Yes two men. Two boys arguing out in the parking lot. Carried it into the dentist office or som- until the just sitting there ready to go into the orthodontist. Toby seay arabian and they're just ripping on this one. Fourteen year old boy and so nobody's doing anything all the receptionist. The doctors be ripping onto the boy because his father did not speak english. And so this guy took advantage of that and he was going to press. I was right. You were wrong all over the parking speed. Yes so nobody was doing anything. Nobody and i'm going. What's wrong with these people and i stood up and said you have a safety officer and this one reception. This goes no. And i go really so. I took my camera on my phone out. Put it up over my head. And i walked towards him going gentleman gentlemen and they turned around. They saw my camera and they stopped dead in their tracks. And i said take it outside and so the one who struggled within his son told him what i said and so he was the first one to leave with the sun following and then the other two kind of were you know strutting their stuff and he came over to me and said you know that's illegal and i said no it's not keep your mouth shut and get outta my space moved backwards and sat dan. Well it's true it's good and he was leaning in did not like that. Yeah so anyway. After i down the whole time to write. Was this a racial thing. I don't know i wasn't on the bottom line. Is i picked up tovia. We're ready to leave and we cross in the hallway with the bad guy who happens to be a friend choice else turns out. He was dead at the kids school and like all my kids know all his toby. Oh no so.

00:30:00 - 00:36:50

I'm passing by him and he was touting the fact that i couldn't take a video right and i pass by them in real Surreptitiously say you're wrong. She got one. Let's get to exit. And then figuring i tell you the the didn't left joel in the shampoo awake it. Yes she's like. Oh by the way. I may have some problems. School kids. Volunteers me mine like i. Just he swing a hammer lissa nature. He was industry nature. All favorite gus. You did what. I do. Like withdrawals birth andrew wells wedding and many other important moments. You forget to hit the record but didn't have the video. I was reading to like the last this second it but it was over my head and i was trying to touch the button with my finger angling. This happened on a movie set and it was a big deal. I was one of the extras. The background actors started getting up in the face of the producer and he had to walk out and it was a big altercation. And i had to record and i was in the moment and i grabbed my thing and it was the big thing and then i got an our film. My guttering started trying to fight back and we had to make sure legally like they saw. We were trying to like walk matt normally. They're all they were all like all the executive producers great. I captured this thing. It was going to save them from lawsuits. And i sent the video right away. Here you go the video of the two seconds of turning around going did you get that. Uh-huh okay next question. Let's go good job everybody okay. Let's wrap up. Do you have any family tradition celebration recipe that balls to see it right here. Nut butter balls They really are good. Though the kids love him in the sakic say story. Oh yes so. The i like that juliana took us to was in san diego and the three of us who do look a lot alike or out in the parking lot coin. Now don't tell her we're family and we walk in and she looks at us and she goes okay which of the two of us older sister and i and so. Our plan was foiled and she sat down. It was fascinating to skeptics. We're going. I'm going to say anything wedding rings. I'll give you my wedding ring. I'm not opening my mouth once. I'm gonna close my search. You can't read my. Yeah yeah skip down so we get in there. And i asked to talk to my mom who had passover and she goes. Oh well i need to tell you that your mom wants your grand your kids to know about her life and that She's really looking forward to baking with joel in the kitchen. Her new kitchen now. That doesn't mean that much right. Except for the fact that i had taken her favorite recipe and put it in a frame. And put it on. Joel's countertop just today before it was a better ball I don't think so. I think it was a bread recipe or crazy out so that was affirmation confirmation. Okay good moving on it wasn't that we skeptics also to validate that. She really knew what she was doing. Right it's not that we're trying to foil. No it's fine. I would do the same thing. You wanna give less information in out thing Joel julianne stat at pass away. And they said oh a real tall blonde guy. Light haired guy keep stepping forward. And he's holding the hand of a younger light haired man and they share the same first name. Yeah johnny so on the ten. That are dad. Died john johnny. Who is our.

Joyce Carter

Joyce Carter is our sweet mom who passed away January 2023. She was a regular on our show and our #1 fan of course! Joyce grew up with two older brothers, moving around the west with her mom and dad, who worked for Southern Pacific Railroad. They settled in Tucson Arizona, where she spent her junior high, high school, and university years majoring in music and part of many choral groups. She met our dad at the U of A, and they started their young family, raising us in Northern California. There, we learned the joys of music, nature and art with our young mom staying home to raise us. Later, after self-taught decorating, Joyce became an interior designer in Danville and started her own business, Silkwood Interiors. She ended up divorcing our dad as they grew apart, but married Cowboy Denny and found her second chapter in love! They moved to Idaho in the 90's where she became a wonderful horsewoman in competitive reining. She also spent 27 as the designer for a home building company Skidmore Inc. Joyce helped design, build, and decorate over 400 homes in the Idaho Falls area, winning many awards. She also took up watercolor painting and produced many, many wonderful pieces of art. Our mom was a fun, energetic, sweet, warm, loving, creative, talented, and strong woman who taught us that we can do anything we put our minds to. She was our Third Musketeer in our lives, with all of our girl trips, our get-togethers, snow birding in Temecula to be closer to all of us in San Diego, and our many talks and motherly advice. She loved to travel, to be around her grandchildren, to cook, garden, build, ride, sing, paint, play piano and guitar. She leaves behind such a void, as everyone she met was instantly moved by her connection and loving sensibilities. We are honored to have had her on our podcast recordings so many times and are glad to have shared her with our audience so they could get to know our wonderful mother. She will be so , so missed.
